So, here’s the problem with diets in general; they come and go. One minute a diet is hot and the next minute it’s not. Take paleo dieting for instance. Ever since CrossFit became very popular all, I hear being talked about is paleo. And if you compare paleo to other diets out there it still is very similar to Atkins and even a diet like South Beach.

With all the buzz surrounding the Paleo diet, researchers have recently found that it might not be exactly what our ancestors ate. This rains on the parade of many devout paleo followers. All Hardcore Paleo Followers follow the best paleo cookbook writing by Sebastian Noel

An article in Discover Magazine suggests that the modern Paleo eaters restricted diet is not as accurately ancient as previously believed. In fact, scientists say that due to drastic geographical and lifestyle differences across early hominin populations, it is unlikely that there was one menu that proto-humans would have followed universally.

A Recent study of carbon isotopes in fossil remains has brought new insight on what early humans ate. It has been revealed that our species’ divergence from a traditional ape diet occurred a full 2.5 million years ago, far earlier than was previously posted. And notably, while the modern Paleo diet cuts out all grains, similar research has also revealed that our ancestors began eating grains such as wheat and corn as early as 2.9 to 3.9 million years ago.

While the Paleo diet’s guidelines may inspire healthier choices, like the exclusion of refined sugars and processed foods, it seems that these diet decisions cannot be said to be entirely in the interest of historical accuracy.

As you can see that’s the problem with dieting today. We need to realize that we aren’t doing it just to follow the hottest fad. You are doing it to create healthy lifelong habits that make you feel better overall. Eliminating processed and sugary foods is probably one of the most important aspects of paleo.

And if you think about it, that crap is no good for us. So, it doesn’t matter whether you follow full blown paleo or just do it partially, you’re doing a heck of a lot better than the processed crap you find all over stores nowadays. So find some great recipes, and if you need a food processor, or any small appliance to help prep your food, make sure to search for an appliance repairman in Arlington tx for those appliances.

When it comes to a man’s face many people assume that normal shampoo and conditioner or adequate to clean and condition of beard.  Unfortunately this couldn’t be further from the truth.  Like any other region on the body special products are needed.  Most people are familiar with the concept of split ends in a long had hair but what most people don’t understand is the very same thing occurs in beard hair but on a much more dramatic and scary scale.  The term used by most bearded men is rattlesnake nests because of how thick and course facial hair it exacerbates the problem.  Over the generations from the Middle East to the Australian outback men I’ve tried to develop remedies for this detrimental problem.  There was not a real solution until the Middle Ages when men found if they rubbed animal fats and plant oils in their beards it would slow the inevitable breakdown of the hairs.

In the 21st century with come to realize how viable and how important oils and nutrients are to the sustaining of quality hair.  With popularity of beards returning to the United States many deep conditioners specifically designed for beards have started to resurface and flood the market.  Unfortunately many of the current beard oils on the market are individuals who have either made up their own recipes or try to knock off quality European recipes.  The truth is many of these oils may smell good but ultimately leave the beard with rattle snake nests and the face dried out and neglected.  When using over the counter shampoo and conditioners they also and up ruining a long hard work of growing a glorious beard.

When researching and looking for quality beard oil make sure you pay attention to a few simple principles.  It must have high quality vitamin rich oils like Moroccan oils otherwise known as argon, jojoba, grape-seed, or any other high quality oil.  You want to avoid any oils that use castor oil, coconut oil, or only one type of oil.  It took the Europeans hundreds of years to develop the correct blends of oils that work in their region.  I’ve had many people ask why no coconut oil?  Although coconut oil is great for condition it has acids that breakdown the hair strength.  It may work if you only grow stubble and don’t wish to see any long-term length on your beard.

Another good rule of thumb is if you are looking for high quality beard oil avoid all online auction sites.  The very concept is to sell products or as cheap as possible creating a large drive in the manufacturers process to lower costs by using inferior or less quality products.  The truth as quality oil isn’t cheap but it’s not ridiculous either.  You should be looking to pay around $20.00 a bottle that should last you roughly a month depending on your beard and area you live in.  I would recommend only two companies on the market today http://empirebeards.com at that and smoky mountain oils.  Although this company are small but creates the highest quality and best beard oil I’ve found.  If you live in arid region of the United States I would avoid smoky oils because they tend to be a touch too shiny.

In conclusion the best beard oils in America are coming from small startup companies who have deep ties to European and French style beard oil recipes.  I know it is popular the judge beard oils based on smells but anybody can add fragrance to oils.  After trying over 20 beard oils including multiple oils from Europe I can conclude that smoky and empirebeards have the highest quality oils I found.  I hope this saves you from having to shave your hard earned beard.
